4 stars Swiss trio UBERFALL was active from 1984 and until the early '90s, and released four studio albums before they called it a day, with a compilation album from 1994 closing the chapter of the band's history as an active band unit. "Treasures" is a collection of material pulled from the band's archives, and was released by the Swiss label Fazzul Music in 2010.

Based on the contents of this CD, Uberfall is a band that merits a closer check by those with an interest in jazz-rock and a liberal point of view as to what constitutes music in this genre. Their blend of various more or less mainstream pop-oriented escapades with jazz and jazz-rock tendencies strikes me as just as interesting as the more purebred and occasionally rather experimental fare in this album's second half, with captivating saxophone and keyboard arrangements as a distinct and strong point there. Those aware of and enjoying a project like Taylor's Universe should be a good fit for the contents of the second half of this CD, and those with a taste and affection for jazz-rock blended with other and arguably mainstream-oriented styles should find the first half of this CD to be a treat.
